Re: Tie Rod Questions / Alignment Woes

Re: rustoleum gloss black spray cans

I've had extremely good luck with John Deere spray paint. It's a Valspar product and seems to cure well. In fact, I painted my entire Tudor with less than a case of gloss black when my wife asked if...

Re: Tricks to locate TDC

This is the type of attitude that makes me hesitant to post replies.

The original poster stated that he did not currently have a hand crank and was unable to get the timing pin to drop in. Not...

Re: Tricks to locate TDC

If you have a helper, you can jack up one rear wheel and have the helper slowly turn the wheel with the transmission in gear to turn the engine over. It's less effort and struggling than pushing the...

Re: Hand Cranking the Model A

On the topic of cranking: I recently purchased a fairly complete chassis with a stuck engine. Wanted to use the hand crank while working the engine loose. I grabbed the crank from my '30 Tudor and...

Re: Mac's "brake buddy" problems???

Russell,
It's the board with the steps cut in it. The included directions refer to it as a "brake buddy" but I don't think it is called that in the catalog. Sorry for the confusion.

Mac's "brake buddy" problems???

Pedal travel on my Tudor is getting to the point that it's probably time for some adjustment. I ordered the " brake buddy" tool from Mac's to make the job a little easier. I decided to give it a...

Re: Model A Exhaust/Muffler Options

I believe mine is for a Farmall A. It was the correct inlet size. Definitely doesn't have the original model a sound, but a nice mellow tone that is a bit different than a cherry bomb. I'm...

Re: Stripped Connecting Rod?

Re: Taller Rear Tires

So, it sounds like the 550/600s are a fairly common upgrade. I agree that they do look good in the posted pictures. Thank you for that. Looks like they give a 2" increase in dia and 0.8" in tread...

Taller Rear Tires

I have seen quite a few driver quality A's running 16" '35 wheels with taller rear tire sizes. Has anyone tried a larger size tire on the original 19" wheels. If so, what size did you run? 700-19?...

Re: Wheel Swap Help

Re: Wheel Swap Help

Anybody? Certainly someone on here has done this before. I'm not looking to build a hot rod. Just change the look of the car a bit depending on my mood.

Re: Radiator Cap A-8100-C
